BILSKIRNIR "In Flames of Purification" CD
Darker Than Black
Bilskirnir's style is reminiscent of early Burzum and Graveland - raw, yet somewhat melodic. The guitar sound is layered and repetitive, effectively fusing several unique individual riffs into a whole. The drumming is solid, with a lot of cymbal and varied breaks. Vocals are a harsh scream, with occasional throat-tearing moments of aggression. The production is thin, but perfectly mixed, so that guitar, drums, and vocals are well-balanced. The writing here is very solid. Especially worthy of praise is "Die Lichtung". It's thirteen minutes of sludgy and oppressive riffs, all swirling around a central theme.
